It's the beginning of spring and we are weeks out from the end of this school year. There is still a lot to keep everyone busy and we hope you and your student(s) will join the foundation in a few of the Spring programs.
1. Let's celebrate the beginning of Spring and take a few moments every week to step outside and enjoy nature in our backyard, neighborhood and community. This Saturday in partnership with Inside the Outdoors the REACH Foundation will be hosting a virtual hike in Carbon Canyon Regional Park as the finale to Experience Your Environment 2.0 . This is family friendly, fun and interactive way to learn about plants and animals in our environment. An Inside the Outdoors naturalist will be onsite at Carbon Canyon Park sharing with us new discoveries about the park and it's ecosystem. Join in by registering at the REACH Foundation website to receive your Zoom link for Saturday mornings event.
2. From the Inside - Speaker Series (Part 3) is scheduled on Wednesday, April 14th at 7 pm. Four extraordinary PYLUSD Alumni that were a part of PYL Career Academies will return to share ideas, stories, and insights to help high school & middle school students prepare for college and future work experiences. PYL students are encouraged to join and ask questions. Register online at STEM-Up Club
3. Our session of Spring Coding Classes is open for registration. The 7 six week courses offered for PYL students grades 4-8 begin the week of April 18th. We encourage STEM learning through Coding Classes and the variety of choices will spark an interest in technology with your student.
4. In March we welcomed Dr. Elsasser as a guest to our Zoom REACH Foundation Board Meeting. His dedication to education was evident as he shared his backstory. He appreciates the collaboration the foundation has had with PYLUSD over the years and will continue to support our work to enrich the educational experiences of our students. We applaud the hard work of all the PYL educators and staff to bring PYLUSD back to in-person learning on April 19th.
